In a not so surprising turn of events, another Democrat is looking to target those on the right who supported the President by creating a list of their relevant information. The target this time around are those who supported those Congressmen who helped pass certain provisions of the Trump tax cuts and financial backers of the President and the GOP. More from Bongino.com:
The latest is New York Congressman Tom Suozzi (D), a Congressman you’ve likely never heard of before. Representative Suozzi represents Long Island, and if you support one particular provision of the Trump tax cuts, he wants you on a list.
Congressman Suozzi’s insane calls are alarming and yet expected. Given that members of Suozzi’s party have also called for lists of “Trump sycophants,” this is just the latest iteration in a long-standing effort to expunge conservatives from polite society. Suozzi said the following “We have to get organized and start holding these elected officials who are consciously undermining our state to account.” According to the New York Post, Suozzi’s sense of urgency was inspired by a story about Goldman Sachs potentially abandoning the hostile state of New York “for a friendlier tax code.”
Representative Suozzi understands that New York’s appeal is not only the lights of Time Square, Central Park, or the formerly bustling city streets but also the opportunity that a force like Wall Street provides the city. When Wall Street firms begin to bail on New York then the state’s political force begins to wane. The New York Democratic establishment has been trying to fend off competition for years, as Tablet Magazine’s Zaid Jilani notes. Jilani tweeted about how the Democratic machine is fighting off ranked-choice voting in hopes of maintaining the city’s one-party system. Jilani tweets further, “in one breadth these folks are going to denounce the GOP for restricting or undermining democracy and in a second breadth they are trying to maintain a political environment where only one party is viable.”
In sum, Representative Suozzi’s effort to shame and blacklist those “undermining New York” are not part of an effort to expose power. Instead, Suozzi’s actions are intended to cement his and his party’s power. This is to be expected given that Suozzi and his democratic colleagues in the House of Representatives barely held onto power in 2020. As Tucker Carlson famously says, “Almost everything the left says these days is projection. They accuse you of exactly what they’re doing.”
The story is not surprising, this is the new style of the Democrat party and America can expect more of this in the future as extremism becomes more mainstream and Ideas that would have been scoffed at just 5 years ago are considered normal and “courageous”. If you, an average citizen, were to construct a list like this federal agents would break down your door and take you in for an interrogation.
